Maus - Recogniser - [drift004]
This album plays like a soundtrack to a movie that goes through a variety of twists and turns. The songs create a range of moods, using many different sounds. The dramatic bells, guitars, and synths lay down the groundwork for those crunchy, bleepy IDM beats that Drift Records loves.

Another high quality release from Drift, a label to watch in the future. Maus have created an album full of sweeping arpeggios, everchanging clicky beats and big pads. The overall atmosphere seem to be more on the darker side, but that's perfectly suitable for the long winter evenings. The only complaint would be that some of the beats have some sharp, digital edges, in contrast to the warm textures surrounding them.
